DIIV are releasing a new album, Deceiver, on October 4 via Captured Tracks. Now they have shared another song from the album, “Blankenship,” via a video for the tight shoegaze track. Sean Stout directed the video, which intercuts between the band performing the song indoors and a woman (Savannah Macias) seemingly lost in the desert. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Previously DIIV shared Deceiver‘s first single, “Skin Game” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared another song from it, “Taker,” a somewhat languid shoegaze cut that grows with intensity as the track ends and was also one of our Songs of the Week.

Deceiver is the band’s third album and the follow-up to 2016’s Is The Is Are. The band’s current lineup features Zachary Cole Smith (lead vocals, guitar), Andrew Bailey (guitar), Colin Caulfield (bass), and Ben Newman (drums). The album was recorded in Los Angeles in March 2019 with producer Sonny Diperri (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Protomartyr), which is the first time the band has used an outside producer.
